Why not get the brake lines and pads right now? The lines don't cost more then $120 and pads depend on the ones you buy. You can always do the rotors later. Its just a thought. Otherwise I'd say if it really was only one then get the pads. You might just want to wait and save the money to do it all at once.

Yeah. Doing the entire brake system at one time is a good idea on any car. Usually when you do only one or two things, you don't see or feel much difference in braking. Unless it's absolutely imperitave that you upgrade a portion of your brakes now, I say wait until you can do the entire system.

Start off with the pads and brake lines. You can technically start replacing things at 0001 miles, but that is your call. I'm @ 4500 and have on order pads and lines. I just hate that mushy pedal feeling.
